St Martin’s marathon runner Ryan Allsop beat his time target when he completed his run around all five inhabited islands on Saturday.

Ryan, who has previously taken part in the Tresco and Barcelona marathons, finished his 32-mile challenge in 6 hours and 50 minutes.

He had expected the route to take around 8 hours to finish.

Locals ran along with Ryan when he reached their respective islands and at the end of the circuit, he swam from Tresco back home to St Martin’s accompanied by swimmers from his home island.

The event raised £3,100 for the Cancer Research UK.
